Artists Demian DinéYazhi’ (Diné, born to the clans Naasht’ézhí Tábąąhá [Zuni Clan Water’s Edge] and Tódích’íí’nii [Bitter Water]) and Kevin Holden (Diné, Irish, German, and Norwegian) perform SHATTER///, a cathartic destruction and literal shattering of the racist stereotypes that have, for centuries, violated the rights, sacrality, and complexities of Indigenous cultural identity. Spectators will be able to witness the artists smash these stereotypes into bits.
CCA has implemented a live, multi-camera setup in its gallery space to be fed in real-time to CCA’s cinema where audiences can experience the performance on the big screen. The event is proceeded by an in-person moderated discussion with DinéYazhi’, Holden, and CCA’s programming coordinator Kiersten Fellrath. After the performance, the audience can relocate to the gallery space from the cinema to view the aftermath.
The performance activates the installation by DinéYazhi’ in CCA’s exhibition Self-Determined: A Contemporary Survey of Native and Indigenous Artists.
